Handmade at The Scullery

by

Handmade or homemade products are so dear to my heart. Not only because I have our homemade spreads and jams business, also because I recognize the amount of work put into each homemade or handmade item.

The last quarter of 2014 was not good for my body.

Reclaimed Space

Being a stay-at-home/homeschooling mom has its perks.  I get to spend more time with the kids and we learn things together.  But I admit that there are times when I want to be by myself doing what I love to do: reading, writing, crocheting and other “me stuff.”  I can do all these in the bedroom […] Read more…

When God Says Stop

by
Coby's "Earthquake Scene" for Science. Notice the police car and the ambulance :)

Have you ever experienced something like this: You are about to do or say something then you feel this strong urge to just stop?  You don’t know what it is or who is it that’s preventing you from taking the next step.  Some say it’s your conscience, a “higher power” or for the believers, it’s […] Read more…
